    This may come across as a little blunt, and it's not specifically directed at you, but questions like yours in general.

    These types of question are virtually impossible to answer without any sort...

    It's all about balance (and strength).

    Compare your position to ZJ, and he is "sat down" much more than you, very balanced and in complete control.

    If someone blocked the ball down his backhand...

    Hi Maurice, I'll try and be as constructive as possible.

    I think a lot of this depends on what your end goal is.

    Against a robot, where footwork isn't important, I can see why you may feel this...

    Hey Maurice,

    Before I comment, can I just ask if you are looking for general opinions on all of this (be that in favour, or against?)

    Or are you only really looking for opinions/advice that are...

    Hey Michael,

    Is there any video of you playing at all?

    Even if it's just messing about, it would be good to get an idea of your level, and the advice would be MUCH more appropriate after that....

    100% this.

    It’s hard to comment without seeing you play, but what are you trying to achieve here?

    The power comes from the legs and body rotation, not the arm, so I don’t think you should...
  7. I wouldn't disagree with your comment here, but I...

    I wouldn't disagree with your comment here, but I don't think it applies to Gozo in this specific instance.

    Above all else (within reason), being consistent as you learn Table Tennis is the most...
  8. I know what you are saying, and in this instance,...

    I know what you are saying, and in this instance, I’m more inclined to agree (given the set up the coach has recommended).

    However, the alternative is to take advice from a bunch of random people...

    Given this statement, you have 2 options.

    1. Blindly go with what the coach says and trust that they know what they are doing.

    I would do this if the coach has proven success of training others...

    I'm a big advocate of playing deep returns and long pushes to open the game up.

    I'm a big guy, and I'll never win the nimble/quick over the table attacking game.

    I also find players are so used...
  11. There are certainly levels to this, and as I'm...

    There are certainly levels to this, and as I'm not your coach, I would be hesitant to advise one way or the other.

    Personally, I think you need to be playing a shot with fast bat speed (whether...

    I'm sure your coach will say the same thing here (and I don't want to be "one of those guys on the internet spouting random advice"), but I would 100% avoid that sort of shot if you are looking to...

    Honestly, once you get past £50, you get severely diminishing returns.

    Is a £150 blade 3 times as good as a £50 blade? Absolutely not (generally speaking).

    Is a £300 blade 6 times better than...

    This isn't an answer to your question as such, but I'd ask yourself a few things before going down this particular rabbit hole....

    What brings you enjoyment from the sport?

    If you can find...

    Interesting take!

    Truthfully, I’ve perhaps been fortunate to “predominantly” be around coached people most of my life (certainly from a junior POV).

    These people who are learning the correct...

    I think D09C is Timo’s baby. Pretty sure I read/watched that he was instrumental in pushing for that type of rubber from Butterfly, having seen the Chinese dominate with their H3!

    I think we’ll...

    I respectfully disagree with this - Although I do understand what you are saying.

    Firstly, yes, in general I’d recommend going with whatever your coach says, over us internet dwelling folk!

    The issue with threads and discussions like this, is to offer the most sound advice (given what little information we usually have), we need to make fairly large generalisations, otherwise the posts...

    Welcome to the forum @Seacret!

    I have to say, I find it amazing when people say that they play with different blades/set ups, and seemingly change depending on their mood (you are not alone here,...

    I think these points highlight both sides of the argument to a degree.

    As a junior/young adult, improving through the ranks - I wanted faster and faster and faster (god bless the Speed Glue Era)....

    Well this thread turned into quite the rollercoaster.

    To back to the OP.....

    Firstly, be consistent. If you stretch, do it every time. If you don't stretch, don't stretch every time.

    Whilst...

    This is exactly why the thread is set up this way, so only people who have proven (one way or another) to be suitable “commentators” can actually comment.
